Hoops Gameday: Nebraska at Ohio State

Big Ten college basketball begins to heat up with the Ohio State Buckeyes host the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Sunday. That's a key fundamental matchup tonight against Ohio State's trio of excellent three point shooters (SG Kam Williams 48.5%, PG CJ Jackson 41.2%, Diop 37.6%).

The Nebraska Cornhuskers have a top four position in the Big Ten on their radar as the team shoots for their third straight win after upending the Michigan Wolverines 72-52 as a five point home dog. Given that he's now the frontrunner to win the Big Ten Player of the Year, Bates-Diop's name needs to be right at the top of Nebraska's priority list tonight and circled with red ink.

The Golden Gopher women's hockey team could not overcome a four-goal deficit as Minnesota dropped game two of this weekend's WCHA series by a score of 5-1 to Ohio State on the road Saturday afternoon. 'Huskers 57 and 62 point road performances vs Michigan State (Big Ten #3 in defensive efficiency) and Purdue (#1) indicate they could have trouble keeping vs #2 ranked Ohio State. In Holtmann's first season as head coach, junior forward Keita Bates-Diop has become an absolute force on the offensive end, averaging 19.7 points per game this season to go along with just under nine rebounds. Nebraska is averaging 73.4 points per game on offense this year while allowing 69.4 per contest. I still struggle to ignore the points here...

At 14-7, Nebraska can hardly afford to lose the game heading into the remainder of Big Ten play. However, the Cornhuskers have been especially hot of late, winning seven of their last nine including a 20-point beatdown of now 25th-ranked MI. Nebraska held MI to just 37.5 percent shooting from the field and 22.2 percent from deep. OSU is by no means dominant on the boards, as it ranks just 11th in the Big Ten in offensive rebounding at 9.5 per game. Defensively, Ohio State yields 66.2 points per game against the opposing teams. Big Ten and under is 12-2 in Ohio State last 14 home games and under is 20-8 in Ohio State last 28 overall.

But Pochettino, who has admitted Kane could never be forced to stay, believes the 24-year-old would prefer success at Tottenham over any other team.

Ohio State added two more goals in a 26-second span of the second period. The Cornhuskers will keep it very close, but in the end the Buckeyes will just out-coach their way to a win.
